JANUARY

Two paths

Psalm 1: The Tale of Two Travelers
(January 06, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

As you consider your life and the road you are on... and the people you surround yourself with... which road are you on and who is on the road with you? Are those with you worshipers of the one true God? Or are they a different type of person? Because the people you find next to you on your road are a good indication of which road you are on.

Two paths

1 Timothy 3:1: Affirming the Aspiration
(January 13, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

In this text Paul affirms that the role of shepherd or overseer, or elder is a good role. We're going to look at that in five points.

Two paths

1 Timothy 3:2: Elders: The Non-Negotiable Criteria
(January 20, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

Authentic Christlikeness - Models of Maturity: Biblical Elders, The Non-Negotiable Criteria. Who should be an elder in the church and what criteria MUST they meet.

Biblical Elders: Model of Maturity

1 Timothy 3:2: Biblical Elders: Models of Maturity Part 3
(January 27, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

When we deviate from God's plans we have either a counterfeit or a dangerous perversion. This is the Lord Jesus Christ telling us how to build a safe sheep fold, protecting the sheep from the danger. In this message we'll see the non-negotiables summarized and Christ's love illustrated.

FEBRUARY

Biblical Elders Must Have Christlikeness

1 Timothy 3:2: Biblical Elders: Models of Maturity Part 4
(February 03, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

When we deviate from God's plans we have either a counterfeit or a dangerous perversion. This is the Lord Jesus Christ telling us how to build a safe sheep fold, protecting the sheep from the danger. In this message we'll see the non-negotiables summarized and Christ's love illustrated.

To Be Like Christ

1 Timothy 3:2-3: Biblical Elders: Models of Maturity Part 5
(February 10, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

Upon Paul's arrival in Ephesus he discovered that what he had warned the elders would take place, did take place: pervese men from amongst their own selves arose speaking perverse things, seeking to draw the disciples away from the church. That means we need to model this Christlike hospitality, this Christlike approachability, we need to model this Christlike doctrine, and we need to model this Christlike freedom. And we need to insist on having those types of models in front of us.

The Mind of Christ

1 Timothy 3:3: Biblical Elders: Models of Maturity Part 6 - The Mind of Christ Part 3
(February 17, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

1st Timothy 3:1-15 - These are our elder requirements. These are the requirements for any man who would be a pastor, shepherd, elder, overseer, bishop. Today we talk about the next three: pugnacious, he's not to be pugnacious, but gentle and peaceable. Pugnacious... what is that? In other translations it is translated as violent, striker, a bully... this person is not a bully... this person is not a striker... he's not violent. He's not pugnacious.

Psalm 73

Psalm 73: When The Bad Guys Are Winning
(February 24, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

This is a wisdom Psalm. That means it is intended to teach wisdom. This is also a prayer to God. It's been said that this one Psalm alone summarizes the entire book of Psalms. If you get this Psalm right, you'll understand your Bible... you'll understand the Christian experience. So this is an important Psalm. It is a Psalm of both confusion and comfort. Asaph has carefully crafteed this Psalm with an introduction (verse 1) and a conclusion (verse 28). Two brackets. We identify those brackets with the word good.

MARCH

Genesis 1:1

What Is The Most Hated Verse in the Bible?
(March 03, 2019 - Steve Hudgik - Part 1)

If you knew you were about to lose most of your memory, and that you'd only be able to remember three Bible verses. Which three would you pick? Asking the question a different way. hich three verses do you think Satan hates the most, and why? What section of scripture is most frequently distorted in seminaries? Which section of scripture do church most often ignore? Which section of scripture is the foundation of the Bible?

Bible Genesis 1:1

The Verse That Destroys False Religions:
(March 05, 2019 - Steve Hudgik - Part 2)

This is part two of Steve Hudgik's message on Genesis 1:1, an introduction to Genesis. The attacks of the world on the Bible, as well as Satan's attacks far exceed attacks on anything else. And the Bible is attacked because of what is said, not because Christians are immoral lawbreakers. There is something going on here. Christianity and the Bible are treated very differently from all of the other religions in the world.

Remain Faithful

The Cost of Faithfulness:
(March 10, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

Yes, the world is going crazy. When a culture rejects God, suppresses what is true about God in unrighteousness, there is a three step process of God giving over that first results in a sexual revolution, the second step results in a homosexual revolution, and the final step is that man is given over to depraved mind so their minds are now worthless. And we see that in our culture. The basic ability to think logically and rationally has been completely abandoned.

Love of Money

Free From The Love of Money:
(March 17, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

Free from the love of money.” That's what we're going to look at today. I had just a blessed time this week studying this. I think you are really going to enjoy seeing what God has said about this topic. I was very, very blessed, and it is our privilege to be be able to sit and look at this in depth. I think you're going to see something profound about God that is really going to encourage you. It has encouraged me this week. So I'm excited for us to dig in here.

The Christian Household

The Christian Household Part 1
(March 24, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

Verse four is where we are at, and that's what we're going to look at. “He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity. But if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?” These are God's qualifications for who can lead His church, then you want to use this as a grid to evaluate any church that you would consider attending.

Discipling Children

The Christian Household Part 2
(March 31, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

How should you discipline your children? Should you discipline your children? What is the purpose of discipline? How does discipline change as children grow older? Pastor LeDuc addresses questions about the family and disciplining children, including the question of, what should you expect as a result of disciplining your children. This is an important, Biblical, and informative message for parents and grandparents.

APRIL

1 Timothy 3:6

The Danger of Spiritual Pride
(April 07, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

If you've been a believer in the Lord for any time, then you know what it is tho struggle with sin. To have a particular sin that keeps recurring over and over. To think that you have victory over that sin, then only to discover then shortly after a while it comes back with a vengeance. And that's because we let our guard down. Well Satan doesn't forget. He knows our weaknesses. He knows where the chinks in our armor are, and why try a new place?

Psalm 118

Palm Sunday - Jesus The Stone
(April 14, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

We'll take just a moment to speak about tradition and Christian culture. Tradition in and of itself is neutral. It's morally neutral. It's neither positive nor negative. However, tradition, it's fair to say, more often than not, downgrades. Tradition desegregates the truth. Rarely, if ever, does tradition add anything. And the reason is... scripture is sufficient. We have everything that we need for life and Godliness revealed in God's word. It is sufficient.

1 Corinthians 15:1-12

The Gospel By Which You Are Being Saved
(April 21, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Cephas...

1 Timothy 3

I'm Entitled! You Owe Me!
(April 29, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

But not only that, we have a culture full of people who are emotionally unstable. They're entitled. They're emotionally unstable. They are irrational on top of it all. We would say that they are entitled because they think that God owes them something. They think that somebody owes them something. They are due something just because of the fact they exist, somebody ought... and I use the word “ought...' ought is a moral word... should. Somebody ought to give me something. I am due something.

MAY

1 Timothy 3:8-13

The Office of Deacon - Part 1
(May 05, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

In this messsage Pastor Chris transitions from our study of elders and into a study of deacons. He concludes the discussion of elders by describing the role of elders. Pastor Chris then opens the teaching on deacons by talking about the required characteristics, as well as defining the word "deacon." This is part 1 of a three part series of deacons, answering the question of who is qualified to be a deacon and what does a deacon do?

1 Timothy 3:8-13

The Office of Deacon - Part 2
(May 12, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

Part 2 of the discussion about deacons and the role of deacons in the church. This overall study is called God's plans for His church. What we mean by that is a blueprint or diagram, not God's hopes or desires or prayers. 1 Timothy is a letter that shows how God wants His church organized, and structured and run. We are now in chapter three which looks at the offices of elder (overseer, pastor, or bishop) and deacon. Today we continue to look at deacons.

1 Timothy 3:8-13

The Office of Deacon - Part 3
(May 19, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

Deacons are men and women who are professional assistants to the elders. They assist them in ministry. And so the deacon is tied to the elder. That's why there are no skill requirements listed in scripture for deacons. The skill requirements are determined by the elder, based upon his needs. The elder will select his deacons based upon the character qualifications for deacons, and based on the needs of the church and how the elder needs his hands freed up to minister the word.

1 Timothy 3:8-13

Deacons: Part 4 - Women Deacons?
(May 26, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

Are there qualifications for the wives of deacons? Should women be appointed as deacons? In 1st Timothy chapter three verse 11, what is the first word? Some translatins have "women." Some have “wives.” In the Greek language we don't have a word for wives. That is determine by context. What Paul could have done, if Paul wanted to say these were the wives of the deacons, is use a possessive pronoun. I's a basic grammar... “their women.” And then the translators and interpreters would have understood... “their women...” these are the the deacon's wives. That makes it very clear. But Paul didn't do that. These are women who are deacons.

JUNE

1 Timothy 3:8-13

Deacons Part 5 - The Rewards for Deacons
(June 02, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

“For those who have served well as deacons obtain for themselves a high standing and great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus.” -- The first reward is a high standing. What it is saying is that, for those whom humble themselves, God will exalt. As a result of their service deacons are going to be exalted in the hearts of God's people. Second, as they see the elders teaching, and peole growing, they will become more confident in their faith. As they see others growths, they grow in confidence in their faith because they see the power of God... they see the provision of God. So there are two rewards for deacons.

1 Timothy 3:14-16

God's Governing Plans For Us - Part 1
(June 09, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

What we have here is a sort of conclusion to a section on order in the church. It's not a full conclusion. He continues his line of thought in the next chapter. But it is a completion of sorts. The overall theme here is God's governing care for us. Not just His care, but His governing care for His church. What we're going to see here is his reason for writing. That's given in verse 14 and the first half of verse 15. And we'll see that in six parts. The first part is the authority. Paul writes scripture inspired by the Holy Spirit. It's not merely his personal preference. This is God breathed scripture.

1 Timothy 3:14-16

God's Governing Plans For Us - Part 2
(June 16, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

Here we have a statement of identification. I would define it as our commission. And this divides into two parts. The very last clause of verse 15 and all of verse 16. The two parts are the commission and the confession. Let’s begin to look at those. The living God’s church is the pillar and support of the truth. When is the last time you heard the church defined that way. Or the church’s purpose statement given that way. That’s how the Holy Spirit inspires it.

1 Timothy 4:1-6

A Theology of Apostasy - Part 1
(June 23, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

In our bulletin it says we are a Bible believing, expository preaching church, and that is true, but it's days like today and texts like what we're going to look at today, that in some ways makes me wish I could be a topical preacher. You get to skip over the things that are not as fun to talk about. Skip to things that are less offensive. But, God has not called us to do that. God has called us to work through His word in the order that He laid it out for us.

Genesis 1:1-31

Observing Creation -- The 5Ws of Genesis Chapter 1
(June 30, 2019 - Steve Hudgik)

What we are going to do today is ask six questions about everything. I mean all of creation. Where did everything come from? We see this wonderful, and vast and huge, and beautiful creation all around us... so let's ask the five W's plus an "H" question. In fact, in the previous two messages on Genesis, which were back in March when Chris was away. So in those two previous messages all we covered was Genesis chapter one, verse one. And it is amazing how many of the W's are answered in that one verse. For example:

JULY

Genesis 1:2-8

Humanity Makes A Mess of God's Word
(July 07, 2019 - Steve Hudgik)

“Chose today... Darwin or Jesus? Who will you believe? Who will you trust? Who you pick determines what you believe startiong with Genesis, and a correct understanding of Genesis is important for understanding the rest of scripture. Choose Darwin and you'll need to find ways to add to scripture, such as adding millions of years between Genesis 1:1 and verse 2. Choopse Jesus and take scripture simply for what iot plainly says.

Genesis 1:9-31

Building The Stage On Which God Will Be Glorified
(July 14, 2019 - Steve Hudgik)

Genesis 1 is not a science textbook nor is it a history textbook, although it is a historical narrative. What is it? It is a description of God as He builds the stage on which He will glorify Himself. God is revealing who He is, the uncreated creator. The one who simply speaks everything that exists into existence. The one who made everything and thus owns everything, including you. God is the powerful, majestic, creative artist who creates, and everything He creates is good and perfect.

Psalm 2

Hope and Peace In A Troubled World
(July 21, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

Psalm two continues from Psalm one, picking up on the idea of the wicked counselors (Psalm 1:1) and transitions from an individual perspective to a world-wide perspective. Once you get a proper understanding of yourself (Psalm 1), then you can get a proper understanding of the world in Psalm 2. The objective of this psalm is to give us hope and peace in a troubled world, something that provides comfort in the world we live in today.

1 Timothy 4:1-6

Marks Of A Faithful Pastor, Part I
(July 28, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

A pastor's heart is not manifest in how good the man is at petting sheep. A pastor's heart is manifest in how capable he is at protecting them from wolves.” Children can go into a petting zoo and pet sheep. That is not the proof of a pastor's heart. A pastor's heart is manifest in his ability to protect them from wolves. Because when you stand before the Lord Jesus Christ, and you give an account, the kindness of your pastor will be irrelevant. How gentle he was will be irrelevant.

AUGUST

1 Timothy 4:1-6

Marks Of A Faithful Pastor, Part II
(August 04, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

A faithful minister warns his congregation about the reality of apostasy. The faithful pastor draws his people to spiritual realities, and away from apostasy that comes from deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons. This is spiritual. And Paul has told us in other places that Satan transforms himself into an angel of light. So it’s no wonder his servants do the same thing. So we need to have a worldview that incorporates the supernatural. We need to think of everything in the supernatural plane.

1 Timothy 4:7-10

Marks Of A Faithful Pastor, Part III
(August 11, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

Why do we labor and strive towards godliness? Yes, because it is profitable for this life and for the one to come. But Paul gives us another statement here. “Because we have fixed our hope on the living God.” The evidence that you have fixed your hope on the living God is that you labor and strive in self-discipline, and self-training, for the purpose of Godliness. That is the evidence. You have to pick up your cross. This agrees with the words of our Lord.

1 Timothy 4:11-12

Marks Of A Faithful Pastor, Part IV
(August 18, 2019 - Chris LeDuc)

The faithful pastor, the faithful minister is faithful in exorcising divinely delegated authority. What we are talking about is what immediately proceeded this. We can summarize then in two points. He is commanded to prescribe and teach these things: He is to reject unsound doctrine. That requires that he be discerning. And he is to toil hard in the study of scripture with the goal of application. All of this is intended to transform you into the image of Christ
